    They're a 10.5 point favorite vs. Michigan. Gamblers don't think that it will be a tough game.

    Agree. Michigan, who is good defensively but struggles at QB, and then Ohio St in Columbus, coming off a bye.

    I heard they've abandoned the forward pass. And electricity.

    No and yes. Michigan has looked a bit flat this year. I'll pick PSU for the win. The game with OSU, however, is gonna be a monster. The Bucks had a pathetic loss to Oklahoma but have rolled over everyone else, scoring 315 points to their opponents combined 77... in only 6 games! Plus, they just had their 4th consecutive 50+ point game, tho that's not as impressive as it sounds when you look at their opponents. One advantage PSU has is that for the last couple seasons, JT Barrett often fucks up in the big game. And then, of course, like Michigan & Wisconsin, PSU just has to be a thorn in OSU's side. Motherfuckers. lol

    And yes, you're right. PSU wins the next two and they will be more than deserving of the #2 spot.
    I'm sick of wearing pants and having responsibilities.

    I've spent the last two weeks listening to the local media bellyache about how Washington and Washington State deserve more national exposure. Then both go out this weekend and shit themselves to teams with 3 losses each. That should put a fork in the Pac-12 this year.

    I would pick Penn State, too. But they rarely have an easy time with Michigan.

    Jeezuz, every time the Hurricanes intercept a pass they have to put that stupid, ugly, thuggy, blingy chain on the player. Not a good look. It's ghetto and low class. I'm rootin' for 'em but I hate that f***ing chain.

    ^ Bucky's getting a lot of criticism from the pundits for a weak schedule. (I heard that on the TV and the radio.) The B1G Championship game is going to be absolutely crucial for them.

    Badgers start at noon (YOUR TIME, Vic) too. So I'm having my first cocktail (not a beer guy) at 11:00am.
